    Re: How annoying is the band?

    If you can hear the band chanting during free throws, then you aren't yelling loud enough. If you aren't yelling because you aren't at the game, then you should probably STFU about the people who are and are cheering for the team.

    Re: How annoying is the band?

    Not saying the chanting is annoying or not but I think the chanting does the opposite of the intention. Since the chants produce a steady pulse (or beat) just like a metronome that helps musicians play rhythms accurately, they help the free throw shooters. As many golfers have learned rhythm in their swing, the band's chanting in rhythm is helping the opposition free a rhythm at the foul line.

    I heard the Duke band chanting "Daddy's Boy" when Doug McD was shooting free throws tonight.

    Surely there's something better to chant...

    Re: How annoying is the band?

    Yes, the band's cheering needs to stop. They should sit quietly with their hands folded in their hands in their laps. And all those ISU fans that travel to the tournament games need to shut up as well. And sit down. An NCAA tournament game is no place for loud yelling and clapping. And leave all the cardinal and gold clothes at home. It looks silly when the entire crowd wears unified colors in support of their team. Knowing all those fans are rooting for them puts too much pressure on the players. It's better if it's quiet so they don't think we care whether they win. Less pressure that way. And after big wins instead of rushing the court or screaming and jumping around, ISU fans should give the team an approving nod and head for their cars. That's a much more civilized action.

    Band members seem to get "cheering" and "chanting" mixed up

    This. It's not getting into anyone's head, it just makes the band and by association the university look dumb. Some here have said that people "complaining" are against college kids having fun...well, how cool or fresh is it when their parents could do the same chants if they were in the band 20 years ago? It's not fun or clever, it's lame and annoying. That said, I love everything else that the band does and think that they add a ton to the atmosphere at FB and BB games. But the free throw chants? Just stop it.

    OK, why is it either chants or dead silence? Wouldn't it be possible to just yell? Or, I don't know, come up with something new?

    So it's chants you don't like. No more CYCLONE...POWER, or LET'S GO STATE! Maybe teams are just more sedate playing in the NIT.

    If you think "Cyclone Power" and "Let's Go State" are in the same category as "The ball is bigger than the hoop," then you need to re-think your life.

    Do you call basketball media making fun of the band's chants positive reviews. They dont have to be quite, they just need to rethink what they are saying.

    I bet all the band people got together and thought these were clever and the coolest thing ever. Sitting there giggling. The ball is bigger than the hoop. Haha good one Timothy!
